Antonio Brown offers to help Tom Brady 'get those hands right'

After watching Tom Brady's receiving skills cost the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown couldn't help but poke some fun at his AFC rivals.

Brown tweeted at former Steeler and current Patriots linebacker James Harrison on Monday night, writing, "tell your guy @tombrady I know he lost his trainer so if he want to get those hands right [hit me up] this off season." Brown paired the text with a photo of Brady dropping a pass from wide receiver Danny Amendola on a trick play during Sunday's game.

Had Brady caught the pass, the Patriots would have converted a third-and-5 from the Eagles' 35-yard line in the second quarter, with the chance to take a 10-9 lead with a touchdown. Instead, the pass hit Brady's hands and fell incomplete, and New England failed to convert the ensuing fourth down.

Later that quarter, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles hauled in a touchdown pass from tight end Trey Burton on a very similar play to help the Eagles to a 22-12 halftime lead.

Brown needled Harrison on Twitter earlier this season after the linebacker was cut two days before Christmas by the Steelers, asking him how he got fired on his day off. Harrison's departure from the team upset several Steelers players, with many saying he forced his release intentionally in order to join the Patriots.
